You know what? I think I’m coming to love Wednesdays more and more every week. First of all, I have an early shift at work which gets me done for the day by 1:00pm…gotta love that, right? I also love this Wednesday in particular because I have a fun evening planned.
But another reason why I’m loving Wednesdays so much lately?
8:15am – Breakfast
As usual, you guys have already seen this one.
Thankfully, at least most of my Tuesday breakfasts lately have been good enough to see again.
11:15am – Mid-Morning Snack
A banana-flavored SOYJOY bar.
I actually snacked on this post-workout, which was a 50 minute mish-mash of a treadmill routine. There was some HIIT, some walking, some running, some jogging…pretty much everything. It was intense and great.
Lunch – 1:00pm
I know it might sound weird to put stew on a salad, but it was pretty much just a few big chunks left in the container so it worked out perfect. Plus, by this point, the stew was so full of flavor, so this salad was awwweSOME.
Mid-Afternoon Snack – 3:30pm
A cara cara orange (so glad I found them again this weekend!)
(recycled photo) I actually wasn’t super hungry mid-afternoon, but I knew I wanted something before some of my sessions started at work. This little guy did the trick.
Dinner – 6:00pm
Who says you can’t have two salads in one day!
This salad was filled with lots of veggies along with a leftover piece of grilled chicken from last night. If you couldn’t already tell, I was sort of on a mission to clear out some leftovers from the fridge today.
Since I was bringing this dinner salad to-go, I also made sure to do the salad dressing trick. Gotta love saving an extra dish to clean!
Right after finishing my salad I wanted something sweet, so I snacked on some cinnamon roast almonds that I realized I had in my bag.
Evening Snacks – 8:45pm
As soon as I walked in the door, I spotted the three leftover Irish cream cupcakes that were sitting on the counter. Would you believe that I photographed these earlier, even had to cut into them, yet held back from eating any?
Welllll, I had waited long enough. I went ahead and had half of the one that I had cut earlier. And, of course, I had to eat it in true Courtney fashion: rip off the bottom half, eat that plain, then eat the top half with all the frosting. It’s my favorite cupcake-eating strategy.
I actually was hungry by the time I got home, so in an attempt to keep from eating the remaining two cupcakes, I decided to make myself a real, substantial snack.
And that snack right there may have been the best thing I ate all day yesterday.
What was the best thing YOU ate yesterday?
